Explore the dark underground world of a lead miner in Victorian Upper Weardale. From the moment you put on your hard hat, lamps and wellies, your visit becomes an unforgettable adventure.
Experience life above ground working as a washer boy and see what minerals you can find amongst the silt – shiny bits of quartz, fluorspar or galena?
Enjoy all that Killhope has to offer, from breath-taking scenery and lots of wildlife to the gift shop and cosy café offering home baking and a wide range of tasty snacks.
